Expect a master class in comedy when Dylan Moran brings his brand new show Off The Hook to Australia for a national tour in July and August this year, headed to Civic Theatre Friday 17 July.
Moran, best known as the star of ABC TV’s hit comedy Black Books, has recently been sharpening his deceptively rambling stand up in unusual places including Kiev, Moscow and Kazakhstan, making him the first western comic to perform in St Petersburg – with all shows receiving 5 star reviews.
Heralded as “One of the brightest, most original comedians in the land” by The Times and “As sharp as barbed wire” by the Edinburgh Evening News, Moran has spent much of last year touring the US whilst working on a television pilot for ABC and an appearance on Letterman.
This new show, Off The Hook, his first Australian tour in over four years, promises to deliver more of Moran’s unique take on love, politics, misery and the everyday absurdities of life all delivered with poetical panache.
Moran, who has been referred to as The Oscar Wilde of comedy, is unpredictable, startling, bizarre but above all, brilliant and hilariously funny.
It’s important not to be fooled by this gentle Irishman’s unkempt appearance, benign expression and softly spoken brogue. Watching Moran perform is an exhilaratingly unpredictable ride. At one moment an unexpectedly long silence has the audience in nervous suspense, then suddenly they erupt into hysterical laughter.
For any lover of comedy, this is the must see show of 2015!
